9780801000492: The Renegade Pastor: Abandoning Average in Your Life and Ministry

Break out of the trap of average and pursue God's best for your ministry. The average church in America is declining by 9% every year, is behind on budget, and is unable to move forward with the kingdom plans God has in store. The average pastor is stressed out and struggling to maintain healthy relationships and life balance. But while the cycle of average is strong, there is a way to overcome its pull and step into a life of impact and excellence. Drawing from Nelson Searcy's decades of ministry experience, The Renegade Pastor is a relevant, step-by-step resource for church leaders who are ready to step up in surrender to the pursuit of God's best for his or her life and work.

Addresses issues of personal and professional growth including:

-Managing Stress
-Controlling Emotions
-Dealing with Criticism
-Setting Godly Goals
-Planning with Purpose
-Establishing Healthy Friendships
-Developing Strong Church Systems
-Personally Honoring the Sabbath
-Becoming a Better Spouse and Parent

From the Back Cover:

You are made for more than average

You're in ministry because you felt called to accomplish great things for God. You had a vision to reach hurting people and introduce them to renewed life. You wanted to grow a healthy church that would influence your community and draw people in to learn the truth of the gospel. But if you are like the majority of pastors, years of ministry have decreased your passion and increased your frustration. In the midst of life's chaos and the pressures of serving a church week after week, average may have become your new standard--but you've been called to so much more.

Join Nelson Searcy on a mission to reclaim the life of impact and excellence you desire. In this book, he'll show you how to

-manage your stress level
-control your emotions
-deal with criticism
-set godly boundaries
-be proactive with your time
-become a better spouse and parent
-establish healthy friendships
-develop strong church systems
-personally honor the Sabbath
-plan with purpose

God wants to put you back on the path toward the vision he put in your heart long ago. The next move is yours. Are you ready to rebel against average? Are you ready to go renegade?
